The forms themselves are created from shards of glass violently created by the artists, but they become unified in utter stillness by the inclusion of a simple flat sheet and the transformation of the group into polished stainless steel.

This even further delivers their nature from turmoil to serenity - they resolve themselves through the reorganization of symmetry.
